I have a tendency to be a completionist at times, and I bet you do too. When the release date for Avowed was announced, it became one of my most anticipated games of the year. The fact that Avowed is arriving this year has me thinking about the preparation I need to do before it’s released. While there are no earlier games you need to play to understand the story of Avowed, it is set in the same universe as the Pillars of Eternity games.
This has sparked my interest in exploring the background of the game. The inclination to delve deep into a topic extends beyond gaming for me. I am often drawn to the idea of gaining a comprehensive understanding of a subject by immersing myself in related material. My experience as a freelance game writer has further fueled this trait in me.
It’s the same impulse that compels moviegoers to research the extended universe of a film or pushes fans to watch an entire saga before enjoying a single movie. This habit may seem to stem from a completionist urge, but it also reflects a genuine desire to fully grasp and immerse myself in the worlds I engage with. While this trait may lead me down unexpected paths, it enriches my experience and understanding of the subjects I am passionate about.
